4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Julios. Pours out a very dark brown color. Thick, foamy tan head. Complex, malty aromas. Flavor is superbly balanced. Lots of layers of chocolate, slight bit of vanilla with a nice bitterness on the backside. Super smooth. Velvety and not fizzy. Goes down like a glass of chocolate milk! I am not a big stout and porter fan, but this is top notch!
